Had duck breast and cod. Both delicious. Bread pudding was inventive. Wished there had been other salad options. Setting was lovely. We lucked out with a quiet room.

I was a little nervous to eat here because of the recent negative review. My husband wanted to cancel but I am SOOOO glad we didn't. The food was out of this world and we have eaten all over the world! You can tell that the chef puts his heart into his menu. Everything is fresh and cooked to perfection.... More

The service was excellent in Oran Mor but the menu isn't inspired at all. The best part of my meal was my pressed watermelon and tomato salad. My husband said the same for his meal too (he had the assorted greens). He had the salmon for dinner, which he thought was a confused dish with too many ingredients, and I... More

Excellent food, nice atmosphere but it takes itself a bit seriously. Knowledgeable waiter but the place feels a tad too pretentious.

Having read multiple wonderful reviews I booked a reservation 2 months in advance. I was so disappointed with the service and the food. We were seated in the back room and waited 15 minutes for someone to come to our table. When the server came back to ask us if we had any questions in regards to the menu we... More

After reading many good reviews we ate in Oran Mor Wednesday evening. The service was slow and the food was not fresh. It did rain heavily that day so I can assume no fresh food deliveries were made. We were sitting in the very back room, which could account for the slow service. We left without taking a chance on... More

Oran Mor was a splurge night for me, and it was worth it. The food was phenomenal. We visited the night of the hurricane, so the chef sent out a free first course. I ordered the steak, and it was cooked perfectly. I highly recommend Oran Mor.

This was an amazing dining experience. The hotel concierge made us the reservation and when I see her, I have to thank her. The food and service were terrific! The restaurant is lovely and intimate. It is situated on the second floor of what was at one time a house. The service is helpful without being overbearing. We had: Different... More
